A former pageant queen who went on to make waves in music, theater and film, Vanessa Williams, 59, knows her way around a makeup bag. And over time she discovered something is working-including an everyday no-fuss tinted moisturizer that looks natural but camouflages imperfections. She loves the Hi Beautiful You Be You Skin Perfecting Tint so much that she doesn’t leave the house without it.
The unique product is by makeup artist Richard Anderson, of whom Williams is a big fan. “He’s such an innovator,” she said persons. “His new skin tone is one of my absolute favorites – and the mascara is fantastic too.” Formulated with Smart Tint Technology, the buildable gel comes in four shades (Williams uses the shade Rich) that smooth out skin tone and skin texture with a slight and a blurry , leaving a matte finish.
But matte doesn’t mean dry—it also contains alpha lipoic acid and vitamins A and E to moisturize and protect against free radical damage. “It’s matte, so it takes away that unwanted shine while allowing your skin to show through,” Williams explained. The best part is that no tools are required to mix it – it just melts with a few fingertips. And if you need extra coverage, the brand recommends even trying it over foundation for a softly focused, skin-like glow.
Williams is backed by satisfied customers in their satisfaction with the product. “People comment on how amazing my skin looks! And I’m in my 60s, yay!” one reviewer gushed. “I love it, it’s easy to use, nothing beats it for me,” adds another. “The tint really hides a lot of imperfections and looks so natural,” writes another.
In a beauty world where new anti-aging serums and gadgets seem to be popping up around every corner, Williams remains true to her belief that confidence and gratitude are keys to looking her best. “When you feel good, you can create beauty anywhere,” she said.
Also, the beauty rituals that Williams follows are going well. “At 59, I joke that when a woman of a certain age walks into a room, she scans everyone from head to toe [thinking] what have you done? is it a good job Does it work?” she joked. “I’d love to live in a time where we have magic tape that dissolves into our skin and [helps with] elasticity and all that stuff. But this is a dream, so be it [about] Assessment of the risks involved. Is a line worth a cut?”
As many celebrities who have had plastic surgery have attested, a common answer to this question is no, it’s not always worth it. But aging is natural. Shop the rest of Williams’ beauty favorites below.
